2014 Education Champions
Education Champions are elected officials who commit to using their positions to improve Colorado schools. We’ve been lucky to have many Education Champions in the history of the Colorado legislature and the State Board of Education, and this election a majority of the Education Champions we supported won.
This year, Stand’s Parent-led Advisory Committee – made up of parents and community leaders – vetted each candidate on variety of factors, including his or her alignment to Stand’s policy priorities, which include: high academic expectations and quality instruction, quality and transparent investments, effective teachers and principals, and effective oversight of low-performing schools. This endorsement process also included a review of each candidate’s responses to an education-focused questionnaire in addition to candidate interviews.
